Lone Star Gridiron

QB Connor Wood gives verbal to Longhorns

Houston Second Baptist's Connor Wood has committed to the University of Texas. The 6-4, 210-pound junior quarterback, entertained offers from schools including Oklahoma, Stanford, LSU and Georgia, but gave a verbal commitment to UT Wednesday night.

Last season, Wood threw for 2,248 yards and 20 touchdowns with just five interceptions while completing 62.8 percent of his passes. He guided the Second Baptist Eagles to a 9-3 mark and a TAPPS 4-II district title. With another year of high school remaining, Wood has already tallied 5,748 yards and 54 touchdowns.

The Longhorns appear to be in good shape at quarterback for a few years after signing Lone Star Gridiron's #1 ranked QB, Garrett Gilbert (Austin Lake Travis) for this season, while Wood joins Colt McCoy's younger brother, Case McCoy (Graham) as signal callers for the class of 2010.
